Om Horizon 2020 Sundhed

Med støtte fra Horizon 2020 kan du gennemføre internationale forskningsprojekter, der understøtter EU’s politikker på sundhedsområdet. Virksomheder kan ved succesfuld anvendelse af programmet få:

  • € 1-5 mio. til teknologi- og produktudvikling
  • IPR – Patentrettigheder
  • Netværk til udviklingspartnere
  • Adgang til nye markeder
  • Teknologi- og videnstilførsel

Formålet med Horizon 2020 Sundhed er at øge den europæiske konkurrenceevne i forhold til resten af verden og skabe nye arbejdspladser.

Muligheder ved Horizon 2020 Sundhed

Mulighederne er til stede for såvel små som store virksomheder uanset branche og teknologiniveau. Det er således også interessant for virksomheder med traditionel produktion og ikke kun for højteknologiske virksomheder. Det afgørende er, at virksomheden enten står over for en teknologisk udfordring, eller har en projektide til at løse en teknologisk/samfundsmæssig problemstilling. Gennem Horizon 2020 Sundhed kan virksomhederne få medfinansiering fra EU til projektets forskning og udvikling.

Opslag under Horizon 2020 Sundhed, vil der blive udbudt til projekter inden for følgende kategorier (se nederst på siden for aktuelle opslag):

  • Personalised medicine
  • Innovativ sundheds- og plejeindustri
  • Infektionssygdomme og fremme af global sundhed
  • Innovative sundheds- og plejesystemer - Integration af pleje
  • Afkodning af miljøets rolle, herunder klimaændringer, for sundhed og velvære
  • Digital transformation i sundhed og pleje
  • Digitale løsninger og cybersikkerhed inden for sundhed og pleje


Krav til Horizon 2020 Sundhed

Der er 3 overordnede krav til et projekt for at kunne ansøge om støtte fra Horizon 2020 Sundhed:

  • Innovationshøjde - produktet/teknologien skal være ny(t) og løse en Europæisk problemstilling på sundhedsområdet.
  • Stort markedspotentiale eller stor samfundsøkonomisk impact – min. €100mio over 5 år.
  • Projektet kræver 3 partnere fra 3 forskellige EU-lande.

Kommende deadlines

Nedenfor er vist de kommende ansøgningsfrister under Horizon 2020 Sundhed. Er der tid nok til at nå næste ansøgningsfrist? Vi anbefaler at beregne 1-2 måneder til udarbejdelse af ansøgningen.


Citizens in a rapidly ageing European population are at greater risk of cognitive impairment, frailty and multiple chronic health conditions with considerable negative consequences for their independence, quality of life and for the sustainability of health and care systems. The challenge is to foster large-scale deployment of integrated digital solutions which will bring improved quality of life to citizens while demonstrating significant efficiency gains in health and care delivery across Europe.

A mix of advanced ICT ranging from biophotonics to robotics, from artificial intelligence to big data and from IoT to smart wearables can address these challenges. A platform for smart living at home should integrate these technologies in an intelligent manner.


Photonic technologies for health applications is a very promising field, where the EU has produced significant results during the past decades; however, industrialization is still lagging behind. The challenges are to develop methods that provide the clinicians with photonics enabled tools to improve or to assess the successes of therapies.

For Innovation Actions the focus in on the following themes: Photonics devices to support monitoring therapeutic progress; Sensor-Based Optimization of Production Processes. 

For Research and Innovation Actions the focus in on the following themes: Photonics System on Chip/ System in Package for optical interconnect applications; And photonics systems for advanced imaging to support diagnostics driven therapy.


Regenerative medicine offers hope for untreatable disease and the ageing population, improved quality of life and reduced medical costs. However, so far, regenerative medicine has not yet proved itself in the clinic beyond rare diseases or conditions of limited public health importance. With recent scientific discoveries opening up new approaches to regenerative medicine, the challenge is to use these to extend the regenerative approach to major diseases and conditions.

Projects should focus on innovative translational research to develop regenerative processes towards the ultimate clinical goal of addressing unmet clinical needs of large patient groups. 


A range of factors is responsible for the (re-)emergence of infectious disease threats, including antimicrobial resistance, altering the epidemiology and spread of disease in a changing global environment. These include drivers such as climate change and associated environmental impacts, population growth, unplanned urbanisation and high mobility, as well as animal husbandry or intensive farming practices.

It is expected that proposals develop: the technology to allow the pooling, access, analysis and sharing of relevant data, including next generation sequencing; the innovative bio-informatics and modelling methodologies that enable risk modelling and mapping; and the analytical tools for early warning, risk assessment and monitoring of (re-)emerging infectious disease threats.


Despite the general acknowledgement by the scientific community that 'Genetics load the gun but environment pulls the trigger' when it comes to the causation of major non-communicable diseases (NCDs), there is persistent uncertainty as to the global burden of disease attributable to environmental (including life-style and climatic) factors, including healthcare costs and negative economic impact. Deciphering the human exposome is a novel way of addressing the challenge to improve health and reduce the overall burden of disease.

Applicants should take advantage of the last decade's rapid technological advances which have opened up new opportunities to collect, combine and analyse large data sets offering new possibilities to understand the contribution of environmental factors to the global health burden of common chronic diseases.


Currently available methods and strategies for diagnosis and treatment of cancer help clinicians continuously improve quality of care and prevent cancer deaths in the population. However, often rather aggressive treatment, psychological stress (anxiety and depression) can cause physical and psychological problems that may cause long-term after-cure consequences such as similar or other types of cancer, other types of (chronic) diseases and affect the quality of life of a patient. Therefore, the importance of addressing and, if possible, preventing long-term effects of cancer treatment is growing.

Proposals should focus and deliver on how to better acquire, manage, share, model, process and exploit big data to effectively monitor health status of individual patients, provide overall actionable insights at the point of care and improve quality of life after the cancer treatment.


Across the European Union, medicinal products display differences in names, variations in strength or their package size. The unavailability of a specific product may also necessitate substitution in many instances, if a patient is to be timely served in a pharmacy.

This innovation action is expected to support two goals: (i) the cross-border mobility of European patients by offering safer eDispensations across borders, (ii) the implementation of the IDMP standards in Member States drug databases (including a possible linkage to the EU SPOR - Substance, Product, Organisation and Referential master data database) allowing the identification of locally available medicinal products which are equivalent to the one identified in a foreign prescription.


Senior people are statistically at greater risk of cognitive impairment, frailty and multiple chronic health conditions with consequences for their independence, their quality of life (and the one of their families) but also for the sustainability of health and social care systems. There is also increasing evidence that interactions with the environment play an important role in the evolution of the patient's health status and condition.

The scope of this topic is to foster the large-scale pilots for deployment of trusted and personalised digital solutions dealing with Integrated Care, with a view to supporting and extending healthy and independent living for older individuals who are facing permanently or temporarily reduced functionality and capabilities.
